Two Models for Theta Precession Generation Using the Complex Version of the Nagumo-Sato Neuron Model and the Hodgkin-Huxley Equations
The firing of the so-called place cells in the rat hippocampus shows theta precession, meaning that the probability of firing follows the local theta potential with certain phase lags which depend on the instantaneous position of the animal during running in a given field. In this paper, the precession is modeled by two models, one is the complex version of the Nagumo-Sato single neuron and the other the well-known Hodgkin-Huxley equations.
